Hello there. Sorry for the completely pointless image that I’ve posted with this entry. I just dislike when blog posts don’t have images and I thought this one would be the most fitting to the theme. FYI it’s a giant woodlouse from Ikea on my head. I’ve been ‘nominated’ for a few of these little ‘Blog Awards’ that have been floating around…. The Versatile Blogger, One Lovely Blog etc etc. And I must admit, whilst I appreciate the sentiment I am far too lazy to return the favour. I also don’t think they should be called blog awards, as there isn’t actually a reward involved and it’s a slightly misleading idea. Fair enough if you were to offer me a little trophy or sentiment, but alas non of yet. They should just be called Blog Tags as the idea is basically tagging someone’s blog and passing on the tag to several more bloggers. Hence a tagging system not really an award one. Anyway that’s a bit tit for tat, I’m sorry! The general idea is that the person tagged states 7 ‘random’ facts about themselves. So here are mine:
*I was the first girl born under my family name (fathers side) for 7 generations, I was on the front page of the local newspaper and everything. It must have been a slow time for the news in the 80’s. And alas, they gave me a 40yr old builders name instead of a nice girly one.
*My great grandmother was from the Ukraine, this might explain that time someone thought I was Polish in the World Foods Section as Tesco and asked me to translate a jar of something (I couldn’t).
*One of my middle names is Xenia, that stems from the Ukrainian thing.
*When I was 4 I got ran over by a push bike outside my house on the way to the cinema to see Peter Pan. I still have a bit of tarmac in my knee from the incident.
*I have a cat called Kitty. She used to be called Piss Rat because when I had her she pissed everywhere and resembled a black and white rat.
*I’m actually 26, not 12 as my appearance would lead you to believe.
*My first job when leaving school was for a Labour MP. When I say job, I mean they gave me my own office which I fell asleep in daily and did minimal work. It was a time before I had political beliefs and if I had known then what I’d known now the time would have been better spent…. sleeping more.
I think that’s about it. I guess it’s more of a ‘getting to know me’ thing than anything. Enjoy!
I also won’t tag any blogs as the ones I would recommend to follow would probably be the ones who comment the most, so yeah, leave your link below and the person who comments after you MUST follow your blog, how’s about that? Comment tag!
